Bloom’s insane gambling skills drove him into the billionaires category in a career that started with British bookmaker Victoria Chandler after graduating from college in mathematics.
The 50-year-old has developed into one of the greatest football players in the world. He also plays high stakes poker for fun and is nicknamed “The Lizard” for his cold blooded style at the table.
Bloom used this moniker to start his most lucrative business to date, the Starlizard gambling hedge fund, which places incredible millions of pounds in bets on soccer games around the world.
Bloom’s love of football extended to buying and funding his hometown club Brighton and Hove Albion, which fought valiantly against the major English Premier League clubs.
His love for the club is the reason why Stratum Albion will be racing under this name in Australia.
The Stratum name is protected for life after the Australian version won the Golden Slipper in 2005.
Bloom simply added the name “Albion” to the name of the Willie Mullins-trained stander so he could race in Australia.
However, don’t expect Bloom to talk about his betting business or racing interests.
Bloom reportedly only gives interviews through Brighton Football Club and only to local journalists. He politely declined our request to speak about Stratum Albion through his agents.

Fortunately, Mullins’ agent David Casey in Werribee was more open.
Stratum Albion will try to improve Mullins’ skimpy runner-up in the 2015 Melbourne Cup with Max Dynamite.
Stratum Albion followed the same path as Max Dynamite by finishing second in the Group 2 Lonsdale Cup over two miles on his last run in August.
Stratum Albion will go to the Melbourne Cup without a local run-up but has done a lot of work at the Werribee quarantine center.
“We were very happy about him, very good. He did his last job on Saturday – delighted with him, ”said Casey.
“He’s got a decent draw and is hoping for some luck with him on Tuesday.
“He’s a horse that can get pretty stuffy and takes a lot of work, but he enjoys it out there.”
TAB has Stratum Albion as a $ 51 chance to win the Melbourne Cup, but Casey said the price won’t worry the Irish stable on Tuesday.
“Anthony Van Dyck deserves to be a favorite – the English Derby winner and he did so well in the Caulfield Cup,” said Casey.
“People like Prince Of Arran, brilliant form here.
“His (Stratum Albion) shape is not particularly noticeable – it also mixes with jumping.
“We don’t mind being the outsider.”
Those chances could be enough for Bloom to give British bookmakers a decent leap ahead of the Melbourne Cup.
